Dr. Kent Brantly: ‘We’re just trying to be present where we are’

Christian physician who survived Ebola talks about life after the disease and whether his family plans to return to the mission field.

In July 2014, Dr. Kent Brantly was diagnosed with the Ebola virus. 

Brantly, a graduate of Abilene Christian University, was working as a medical missionary in the West African nation of Liberia when he contracted the disease. 

Dr. Brantly and his family currently live in Texas.

Dr. Brantly was this year’s keynote speaker at the Oklahoma Christian Lectureship. While in Oklahoma, he took time to sit down and talk with The Christian Chronicle (a video of that interview is posted below).

He said his family is trying “to be present where we are” right now; however, he said he does hope to someday return to the mission field.
